Infinity Cross

Pendant

Story

The Short Story A Christian cross hand folded from an infinity ribbon in sterling silver, a symbol of God's infinite love and grace. The Full Story This piece is based on the combination of a Christian cross and infinity as represented by the Mobius strip. Each cross is hand folded from a Mobius strip form. The cross a powerful symbol and immediately identifiable as a Christian icon representing God’s deep and abiding love for all of creation. The Mobius strip, a model of which can easily be created by taking a paper strip and giving it a half-twist then joining the ends of the strip together to form a loop, though simple is an amazing thing. It has only one side. What a curious thing. A line starting at any random point drawn down the middle length will meet the beginning of the line without picking up the pen. The Mobius strip is often cited as the inspiration for the infinity symbol, since if one were to stand on the surface of a Mobius strip; one could walk along it forever. Some mathematicians may argue the point, but this is where I take artistic license. Mobius strip as physical representation of infinity combined with the cross representing Gods boundless love seems to me a supercharged symbiotic symbol. Contemplate the meaning of God’s infinite love and grace and how it applies to your life. Feel the joy and serenity of the knowledge that you are loved, infinitely. Draw a line on one side of the cross and you will without interruption find your way back to the beginning. Always on your path, always present, always loved.

There are two sizes of the cross, both are described as a range of size as each is hand made and the final size depends on just how the first bend is positioned because each subsequent bend must follow in proportion to the first.
